w00t – sorta

The “Dell Certified” tech guy just called me. My part is in, and I just set up an appointment for between 3 and 5 pm today. (That would be GMT 22:00 and GMT 24:00 – I think)

That’s the “w00t” — here’s the “sorta”

He thinks the replacement board is exactly the same as what’s in the machine now – AGP 1.0 and all. I knew that was a possiblity, but I was hoping it’d be 2.0 compliant.

He didn’t sound too sure, so I’ll get the machine up and running with the old card, and then see if I can find a diagnostic utility that can tell me if the slot is AGP 1.0 or 2.0 compliant.

At least my machine will be back up and running.

My system is now back up and runnning. Time to find out if this new board is AGP 2.0 compliant.

  1. I thought of another item for the “w00t” column. I’m checking out of work early, which means I’ll be missing the commute traffic.

  2. w00t!!!!

    I’ve been off-and-on broadband the last couple of weeks. I’m mooching off Paul’s cable modem. We’ve been trying to get a wireless lan set up, but he hardware is not cooperating.

  3. well…having wired my whole appartment building, and providing internet to the whole house, good luck with wireless. I didn’t go with that option, mostly because I can find cable really cheap, as well as more costly NICs, and hub.

  4. Well, I’ve given up on the wireless for now. I just ran some cat5 to the hub in his computer room.

    Paul still wants to play around with the wireless access, I think mostly because he’s paid for the hardware and doesn’t want it to have been a waste of money.
